Description

This subject enables students to undertake a focused overseas study tour, during which the business, management and cultural practices of a selected country are researched and experienced. Through this, students gain first-hand exposure to the various business and international management theories that have been studied in their course.The subject involves pre-departure briefings and lessons, as well as a mixture of in-country activities that may include visits to businesses, talks by business leaders and trade officials, tours of culturally significant venues, and/or time to explore freely.

Feedback from previous students suggests that they have found the subject personally rewarding because, in the course of experiencing business, culture and travel in a foreign country, individuals discover capacities for leadership, collaborative support, and problem solving in themselves that might not emerge in a classroom.

This subject involves overseas travel and students taking this subject incur travel costs, which are in addition to the normal study fee. The faculty endeavours to keep travel costs as low as possible by negotiating group rates with airlines, hotels and other providers. To ensure the affordability of the study tour, it is only run if a sufficient number of students enrol and commit to the subject.

Typical availability

Summer session, 2 full days of pre-departure workshops and a 2-week overseas field study
